The SubhumansThe Subhumans
are an anarcho-punk
band formed in Trowbridge
by Dick Lucas, who had formerly been in local bands including The Mental and Stupid Humans.
The band released a demo in 1981 which was heard by members of the band Flux of Pink Indians, who were so impressed that they offered the Subhumans a chance to put out a record on their newly formed Spiderleg label. Shortly afterwards the Subhumans began to release material on their own Bluurg Records label.
After the Subhumans split up Lucas formed the bands Culture Shock and Citizen Fish. The Subhumans occasionally reform for live performances, and continue to command a strong cult following.
